The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has been reportedly struggling to find a sponsor for the side after their last sponsorship contract with a beverage company expired recently.
"We're delighted that the Shahid Afridi Foundation logo will be featured on the Pakistan playing kits, since we are charity partners to Pakistan Cricket Board. Thanking WasimKhan & the PCB for their continued support & wishing our boys all the very best with the tour #HopeNotOut," Afridi said in a tweet.
Pakistan journalist Saj Sadiq further said that along with the Shahid Afridi Foundation logo, a couple of sponsor's logos would be there on the kits of the players during the England tour.
"The Shahid Afridi Foundation logo will appear on the Pakistan kit for the tour of England, together with a couple of sponsor's logos," Sadiq tweeted.
According to a report in Cricket Pakistan, only one company has shown interest during the recent bidding process put forward by the PCB for the sponsorship. It added that the company has valued the deal at only 30 per cent as compared to the previous contract.
